Sweet HD Footage Of China's Chang'e Probe Landing On The Dark Side Of The Moon

January 11, 2019


This is some footage just released by the China National Space Administration of its Chang'e probe's successful descent and landing on the dark (far) side of the moon. It's pretty amazing to watch. The only thing that would have made it better is if I had been riding that probe like a bucking bull, butt-naked and waving a pirate flag. "A Jolly Roger?" The JOLLIEST Roger. Now if you'll excuse me, I'd like to close my eyes and daydream about this until happy hour.

Keep going for the video, it's worth a watch.

Thanks to Justin N, who agrees the aliens must have gotten an early warning and gone into hiding inside their cheese holes.

    Dark huh?, looks pretty bright to me.

    So hard to know how close the ship is without a yen coin on the ground for perspective.

  • atisss

    Only china can call 720x720px video a HD

  • James Mcelroy

    pretty good for a Hollywood sound stage.

  • Less holly more pine.

  • Frédéric Purenne

    Oh wow! I thought it was still way up in the air and we were few feet off the ground. Having a good perspective is virtually impossible looking at this footage.

    Same thought then *WHAM* landed.

    Um...we really thought the Moon was bigger than it was.

  • Bling Nye

    Moon is dusty as fuck, someone needs to get a vacuum up there...

  • ChungLingSoo

    So cool and awesome!

    If you were a passenger you'd really need to be in the crash position for that hard landing.

    China National Space Administration stole the United Federation of Planets and Starfleet logos, I guess they were trying to keep with the "steal everything, invent nothing" tradition of China.

  • Munihausen

    Do not...underestimate...the pow-wah, of the orangemanbad.

    The Chinese landed a rover on the far side of the moon. We have president man-baby making up lies about the 'dangerous miles of sand in Texas'. I'll credit them with getting something done while we make nearly a million citizens into slaves so the orangemangoman can avoid getting harsh words from Laura and Rush.

  • DC Guy

    I like how you conveniently ignored China stealing the logos of two already established space agencies and tried to make this about trump

  • The_Wretched

    OH NOES! Maybe they'll seal the Kool-Aid man logos next!!! Really, is that a thing that bothers you more than 15,000 kids being locked up in US detention centers with out education or adequate health care? Comparing the Chinese's legit success of (but awful authoritarian) leadership to our current abject failure of leadership is valid.

  • DC Guy

    You realize this is the comments section of a satirical blog and not CNN where someone might care about your soapboxing?

  • The_Wretched

    See the vast majority of my comments here being intentionally funny via self insulting humor (willful stupidity). And it's not exactly satirical. I thought the stealing Kool-Aid logo bit was funny. Try laughing some time, you'll feel better.

  • Bling Nye

    ...says the guy that decided to bash another country in their comment, thereby drawing a response in similar vein.
